Arby’s to open in Oroville – Chico Enterprise-Record
OROVILLE — Residents of Oroville will soon be able to eat at Arby’s.
The restaurant is Arby’s sixth location owned and operated by the Fremont-based franchise group Kang Foods LLC, founded by brothers Anoop and Bikram Kang. The Oroville restaurant will be the second Arby’s in Butte County, joining Kang Foods’ Chico location, according to a news release.
According to Anoop Kang, the opening is scheduled for the end of April.
Kang is the owner of the Oroville Arby’s as well as the Chico location on the Skyway. Plans to open Arby’s have been in place for a year.
“We bought the Chico site 2 years ago and got familiar with Oroville and saw the growth there,” Kang said. “Construction is going really well and looks really nice. The 2022 prototype for Arby’s features higher ceilings, cement tiles, double walk-through, etc.
The 2,300 square foot Oroville Restaurant will be Arby’s first in Northern California in over 40 years. The restaurant will have 24 seats inside and 12 seats on the terrace. The team is ready to provide a pleasant experience for customers. The restaurant’s modern design features current colors, decor treatments and ultra-modern accents, including warm woods, subway tiles, stainless steel finishes, blackboard graphics, open ceiling with ductwork exposed, improved landscaping and paneled exterior by Nichiha, according to a press release.
“We are waiting for PG&E for some parts. The plan is to hire 40 people. We have already hired 25 to 30 people. We had training at the Chico site,” Kang said.
The double drive through is based on the example of the double drive through Chick-fil-A and McDonald’s.
“We’re very excited about this,” Kang said. “It’s an additional comfort for customers. With current trends, 75% of our business is driven by drive-thru sales. »
Oroville was home to an Arby’s four or five years ago that closed after the lease expired. This place was across town on Olive Highway.
“Our location will be better; closer to the highway,” Kang said. “We are excited about the overall flow. People are really excited about the opening and so are we. Right now people are going from Oroville to Chico to eat at Arby’s.
Arby’s signature roast beef sandwich is a popular menu item, along with beef and cheddar and brisket sandwiches.
“We’re ready to meet Oroville’s high demands and hearty appetites for Arby’s slow-roasted beef, brisket and sides with our new restaurant,” Kang said. “The area is growing and brimming with new development, and we are thrilled to introduce Arby’s to the local landscape. We built this location from the ground up with the thriving, family-oriented community of Oroville in mind. and we look forward to making Arby even more accessible to fans across Butte County.
